How Can I Remove My Name from a Tiktok Video?

You want to enjoy TikTok without worrying about your privacy being invaded and your name being used in videos without your consent. When this happens, you can contact the creator directly and request the video be removed, you can report the video, or you can contact TikTok directly. You can also set your privacy settings to reduce the chances of your name being on a video without your consent.

TikTok is a fun, interactive social media platform with over 1 billion users worldwide. You can upload your own videos or add content to videos already on the platform through duets or stitches. However, there may be times when you don't want your name on a TikTok video. So how can you remove your name from a TikTok video? There are several steps you can take, as outlined below, and you can get assistance from TikTok user support here.

Duet and Stitch Settings

The first way you can keep your name from being on another TikTok user's profile is to set your Duet and Stitch settings so other platform members cannot use your videos. Duet is when you record a video that follows along with another user's video. A Stitch is when you can use a short clip from another person's video as the start of your own video.

Duet Settings

If you don't want others to Duet your videos, you can do the following:

  1. Open the TikTok app.
  2. Touch "Profile" at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap on the three lines at the top of your profile page.
  4. Select "Privacy."
  5. Scroll down to "Duet" and touch the arrow.
  6. Select who can duet your videos.

Stitch

When you upload a video, you can also choose your Stitch privacy settings. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open the TikTok app.
  2. Touch "Profile" at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap on the three lines at the top of your profile page.
  4. Select "Privacy."
  5. Scroll down to "Stitch" and touch the arrow.
  6. Select who can stitch your videos.

When Your Name is on a TikTok Video

By selecting "Only Me" in the privacy settings for Duet and stitch, you can prevent others from using your name in their content. However, you may find that your name is still being used in a TikTok video. If that is the case, you can try one of the methods below to remove your name from an offending video:

  1. Send a message to the content creator directly. Send a polite message to the creator asking that your name be removed from the video (or the video be removed in its entirety). Explain why you want the video removed. In most cases, the content creator will be willing to work with you to remove the offending video.
  2. If the content creator refuses to remove the video with your name attached, you can report it to TikTok. To make your report, follow these steps:
    • First, hold your finger down over the offending video.
    • Then, choose "report video" on the menu that pops up.
    • Select the reason that best fits why you are reporting the video. In this case, you will choose "Other" and type in why you want the video removed.
  3. Contact TikTok directly when all else fails. Contact TikTok here to request the offending video be removed or your name removed from the video.

Using TikTok should be fun, not stressful. If you feel your name is being attached to videos you find offensive, and you want to remove your name from those videos, you have options. For more information and support, contact TikTok customer support here.
